I know that the Mostali don't use the Theyalan calendar. They use a system of work cycles that makes absolutely no sense even to the Brithini, yet is intelligible to every dwarf.

I do have the old Brithini calendar (from the original Lords of the West manuscupt by Greg and Charlie), but that's not used outside of Aronalit and is not the basis of either the Seshnegi or Loskalm calendars.
